Rosy-fingered haiku

Small boy up at dawn
Declares "Mommy, it's oh-clock!"
Abandon all hope

Mine wakes up at dawn, too. Isn't it lovely that I don't remember what it's like to sleep in (7 am) anymore. Feel for ya!

"Abandon all hope." A wonderful line. And "oh-clock" is a keeper!

Parenthood - abandon all hope (of sleep), all ye who enter.
